Scorpio and Capricorn Sexually

It's in bed where the emotional magic happens for a Scorpio and Capricorn. Capricorn is lusty and considers sex a physical release. Scorpio is lusty and considers sex an emotional release.

Lifestyle and Social Compatibility

However, they're just as happy staying at home alone together.

Spiritual Compatibility

Scorpio is suspicious, Capricorn is pragmatic, and both refuse to believe anything without direct personal experience. Because of this both question religious orthodoxy and dogma.

Potential Issues

Unevolved Scorpios are secretive and manipulative while unevolved Capricorns are controlling and rigid. Scorpio is emotionally powerful; a brooding Scorpio can darken the space around them and make everything feel more difficult. Meanwhile, Capricorn, oblivious to Scorpio's emotions, forges on. However, theirs is such a powerful bond that even when the relationship is at its worst, it may be tolerable and even rewarding to them. But for this relationship to reach their highest potential both will need to recognize and take responsibility for their own negative patterns.

Their Gifts

Scorpio has the power to connect with their Taurus opposite and literally come to her senses. When they are connected to their body and the simple pleasures of movement and sensation, the whole world around them relaxes and stabilizes. Capricorn's opposite is Cancer, and when they connect with that, they are gifted with a depth of empathy and nurturance that opens their heart to those who depend on them. The beauty of this relationship is that each connects the other to their opposite sign.

Gender Differences

It's no secret that boys and girls are different; their bodies are different, their brains are different, and they are raised differently. Gender does make a difference when interpreting a horoscope, but a horoscope is not gender or even person specific, it can't say if you're a male, female, or even a person. All it can tell you is that Scorpio is a water sign, Capricorn is an earth sign and both are traditionally considered feminine (Yin) in nature, and that Capricorn is a Cardinal sign which means they initiate action, while Scorpio is a fixed sign which means they maintain.

In both of the combinations below, it's plain to see that a Scorpio man and a Capricorn woman who share the same progressive values about gender and equality is the most desirable combination.

Female Scorpio and Male Capricorn

A female Scorpio and a male Capricorn look like the most traditional in terms of gender roles. Scorpio women amplify the empathic, receptive qualities of their element; deep, mysterious, charismatic, her desires have a palpable power whether she asserts them or not. Capricorn being cardinal sign supports the social conditioning a boy receives growing up. Boys are supposed to take action, lead, be ambitious, authoritative, and sure of themselves. A traditional Capricorn male will want to dominate, while a traditional Scorpio woman tends to support him, his career goals and put herself second.

Male Scorpio and Female Capricorn

A Scorpio man is magnetic, powerful, passionate and as ambitious as a Capricorn woman. It takes a strong self-assured man to be comfortable with a strong, assertive woman, but a progressive Scorpio man can pull it off. However, if he has traditional ideas about the role of men in society, it could be a problem. It could also be a problem if a Capricorn woman believes in the traditional role of a woman, suppress her ambition in the world and misdirects them toward a Scorpio man.
